  • Provide examples of programs offered at several institutions designed to assist research staff with writing protocols
  • Share insight on items that should be encouraged and avoided when assisting research staff with preparing a protocol
  • Explain how to work with research staff so they understand the service is not a substitute for the committee review and approval
  • Address how different institutions determine when a protocol requires veterinary pre-review and how the IACUC staff assistance differs
  • Demonstrate how to assist research staff with the level of detail required in the sections of the protocol, including the narrative, animal numbers justification, literature searches, and sections that request exemptions from standard policies
  • Discuss how an assistance program can work with investigators to develop a response to comments/questions from IACUC reviewers
